Office or Study Area: Turning your basement into a home office is a great way to provide a quiet, tucked away workspace in your home. A basement turned home office provides a perfect "work away from work" space when you need to be at home or just need a change of scenery.
In the event that your basement ceiling isn't the access point wires or ductwork, you can simply paint it. Obviously this is going to result in a somewhat unfinished look that won't look as modern or chic as the impression you'd achieve with drywall or drop ceilings. It is, however, a functional solution if you're short on cash, and can go quite well if you're aiming for a space with a slightly gritty, rustic appearance.
Cloth ceiling covering is easily removed. This is a huge advantage to using cloth. In a maintenance emergency, being able to quickly remove the ceiling covering to make repairs could save massive costs. Repair problems getting progressively worse or collateral costs from gaining access to floor joists or overhead pipes and wires are eliminated by choosing a ceiling covering that is easily removed. In addition to maintenance, being able to remove the ceiling covering easily provides great customization of the area. A space that a 5 year old might consider heaven rapidly becomes an embarrassment when he or she grows older. Changing the space to reflect changing tastes is quick and easy when using a cloth ceiling covering.
Suspended basement ceilings are commercial in nature but there are also advantages. The structure helps hamper noise levels especially if you are there in your basement working. Moreover, the uppermost portion of the ceiling can be accessed with convenience. If wires and ducts run on top of your ceiling, having a suspended ceiling makes them easily accessible.
A playroom for the kids, a man-cave for poker night, and an office for a home business - a basement can serve all these functions. Choosing the right basement ceiling ideas can be geared to the space's specific purpose.
